As the tweet above notes, the kits are made with Parley Ocean Plastic, designed to help raise awareness of environmental issues and to encourage the development of more sustainable communities.
The kits are a league-wide thing, with all MLS squads having Primeblue kits. Other teams, such as Inter Miami FC and Atlanta United, have already announced when they will be wearing the jerseys.
In a tweet this morning, the Timbers announced a post-game jersey swap where players will give their game-worn jerseys to select nominees, honoring them for what they do in their community. The video below notes that nominations will run through May 28 since the game with the jerseys will be that weekend, indicating they’ll wear the Primeblue kits against the Philadelphia Union that Sunday.
